Hosting your wedding at Gileston Manor

Intimate Wedding

The Intimate Wedding includes all the dreams and elements of a traditional wedding, the difference being that it is on a much smaller scale, perfect for minimalists and couples wanting a curated intimate experience.

Hosted exclusively in the beautiful 18th century Walled Garden & Secret Garden. . .

Whether it’s 20 attending or more, it’s the quality time you get to enjoy with those you care about the most.

An Intimate Wedding is all about spoiling yourselves and loved ones where wonderful memories are made.

" We are so glad we went ahead with an intimate Wedding,

we cannot thank everyone at Gileston Manor enough for all coming together for us and making our dream wedding possible!

It was exactly what we wanted and we wouldn't have had it any other other way."
